The Old Arm Chair.
I lovo It, I love It; and who shall daro
To chide me for loving that old arm
chair? I've treasured it long as a sainted
I've bedewed it with tears, and em
balmed, it with sighs.
'Tis bound by a thousand bands to ray
Not a tie will break, not a link will
Would ye learn tho spell? a mother
And a sacred thing is that old armchair.
In childhood's hour I lingered near
Tho hallowed seat with listening ear;
And gentle words that mother would

She told me shame would never, be

She taught me to lisp my earliest
As I knelt beside that old arm-chair.
I sat and watched her many a day,
When her eye grew dim, and her
locks grew gray;
And I almost worshiped her when she
And turned from her Bible to bless
Years rolled on; but the last one sped,
My idol was shattered, my earth-star
I learned how much the heart can bear,
When I saw her die in that old arm
chair. 'Tis past, 'tis past; but I gaze on it
With quivering breath and throbbing
'Twas there she nursed me; 'twas
And memory flows with lava tide.
Say it is folly, and deem me weak,
While 'the scalding drops start down
But I love it, I love it, and cannot tear
My soul from a mother's old arm

until a job hove in sight and per
mitted me to capture it.
But right here is where some more
of Dorothy's bright ideas came into
play, and her rosy optimism made
our frugal fare during those dark
days taste like feasts that old Lucullus
gave to his friends.
When the job came I stuck to it,
and as time went on the matter of tak
ing a bridal tour lapsed. But it was
not forgotten. Dorothy's brain con
ceived a brilliant idea and harbored
it for five short and happy years.
About a week before the fifth anniver
sary of our marriage Dorothy sprung
her scheme. It was at the supper
table. Poising her fork in midair she
"Will, suppose we go on our bridal
tour, starting on our fifth anniver
sary." "Wh-wh-what!" I gasped, looking
over at the golden-haired girl whose
two years of existence on this mundane
sphere permitted her to occupy a seat
at the table.
"That's what I said," replied Dor-
otny. "Suppose we take our bridal
tour, starting on our fifth- anniversary.

& A BELATED BRIDAL TOUR. "
I frankly confess that the idea was
Dorothy's. As a matter of fact, a vast
majority of the good ideas advanced
in our household come ,fr,om.her. I do
not make the confession as a matter
of self-abnegation, nor as a tribute to
her. It is all so plain to those who
know both of us that any effort I
might make to arrogate to myself the
credit for the bright ideas regarding
our household arrangements would be
greeted with derision.
When we were married circum
stances over which we had no control
prevented us from taking a bridal
tour. In tho first place, we eloped.
In the second place we kept our mar
riage secret more than three weeks,
and before it leaked out I had lost my
There we wore a newly married
couple with nothing between us and
privation save my small ability as a
newspaper man, and almighty small
demand for that little ability during
the strenuous times of '94 when busi
ness was more a memory than a fact.
Even if we had been the possessors of
enough money to take a bridal tour
wo would not have taken It. We
would have used It to live on until I
secured a situation. As It was, heaven

"You mean that we will celebrate

in thunder are we going to do all of
that play acting?"

use raising objections. The whole

our route. I thought I would allow

"0, I knew you would think my
plan a good one!" exclaimed Dorothy,
passing me another flaky biscuit and
re-fllling my coffee cup. "You needn't
mind bringing home the railway
guides. I've got a lot here already, and
I've been looking them over."
